How often should my child brush and floss?

childrens dentist denver highlands | highlands denver kids dentist The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that your child's teeth be brushed twice each day using a child-sized, soft-bristled toothbrush. Make sure the back molars are brushed as this is the place where cavities often first develop. Help your child floss once each day. Floss sticks or picks might be easier than regular string dental floss.
